Accelerating the global adoption of energy-efficient lighting - Paris: UNEP, GEF, U4E, 2017 - 94 p. ilus.

Electricity for lighting accounts for approximately 15 per cent of global power consumption and 5 per cent of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. High-efficiency lighting technologies offer up to an 85 per cent improvement in energy efficiency compared with conventional lighting technologies, while providing an equal or better quality of light. Because of this potential, the United Nations Secretary-General’s Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) initiative identifies energy-efficient lighting as a High Impact Opportunity. It can reduce countries’ GHG emissions, generate significant economic benefits, enhance energy security, and improve people’s wellbeing. This report is published as part of U4E and focuses on lighting. The report guides policymakers on how to promote energyefficient lighting in their respective national markets.
